Upper Secondary Resources

Everything we do at DS Music is focused on teaching the language of music and ensuring a scaffolded and sequential foundation in music literacy for all students. There are a variety of resources designed to teach concepts, strengthen skills and consolidate understanding – everything you need for all learning and teaching contexts.

DSMusic’s Upper Secondary products and resources can be adapted for any class type and are suited for Australian Year 11 and 12 students completing the VCE, TCE, SACE, WACE, QCE, HSC, and ACT SSC. The material can also be adapted for overseas students and used in tertiary music courses.

In addition to the workbooks and online courses, students and their teachers have access to teaching and practice videos, mp3 (audio) files, information sheets and worksheets, lesson plans and curriculum documents. The digital resources, online courses and interactive material is perfect for ready-made revision, remote learning or as a refresh and refine tool in particular concepts.

Learn the language of music in this step-by-step and structured way in order to build the skills you need to be better musicians, no matter your instrument, entry-point or pathway. Check out the DSMusic content and Upper Secondary Resources below.
